The Protectorate of Citianaa is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its burgeoning cat population. The cynical population of 404 million Citianaans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Citianaan economy, worth 15.0 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,227 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Citianaa's national animal is the cat.

Citianaa is ranked 148,453rd in the world and 2nd in Roavin for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 55,717.05 Standard Monetary Units.
